A preconditioner defined by an algebraic multigrid cycle for a damped Helm-holtz operator is proposed for the Helmholtz equation. This approach is well-suited for acoustic scattering problems in complicated computational domains and with varying material properties. The spectral properties of the precondi-tioned systems and the convergence of the GMRES(More)
Efficient numerical methods for pricing American options using Heston's stochastic volatility model are proposed. Based on this model the price of a European option can be obtained by solving a two-dimensional parabolic partial differential equation. For an American option the early exercise possibility leads to a lower bound for the price of the option.(More)

A multiobjective multidisciplinary design optimization (MDO) of two-dimensional airfoil is presented. In this paper, an approximation for the Pareto set of optimal solutions is obtained by using a genetic algorithm (GA). The rst objective function is the drag coeecient. As a constraint, it is required that the lift coeecient is above a given value. The CFD(More)
The deterministic numerical valuation of American options under Heston's stochastic volatility model is considered. The prices are given by a linear com-plementarity problem with a two-dimensional parabolic partial differential operator. A new truncation of the domain is described for small asset values while for large asset values and variance a standard(More)
Parallelization of the algebraic ctitious domain method is considered for solving Neumann boundary value problems with variable coeecients. The resulting method is applied to the parallel solution of the subsonic full potential ow problem which is linearized by the Newton method. Good scalability of the method is demonstrated in Cray T3E distributed memory(More)
This paper proposes a period representation for modeling the multidrug HIV therapies and an Adaptive Multimeme Algorithm (AMmA) for designing the optimal therapy. The period representation offers benefits in terms of flexibility and reduction in dimensionality compared to the binary representation. The AMmA is a memetic algorithm which employs a list of(More)
